My new program kicks off tomorrow and I am committed to pushing through my difficult areas; which usually (okay, always) revolve around following the nutrition plan as laid out! So here are my plans and I’m sticking to them!
These will be done at 0500 hours. (see what I did there?) yes, there will be lots of that coming too! 😉
The workouts are just 22 minutes a day; 6 days a week. I will not be adding in additional workouts to make me “feel like I’m doing enough” either! I know many of us struggle in this area but this will only mess up with my nutritional needs and my recovery periods so as I know our programs are proven to succeed as laid out, I don’t need anything else!
*(I should note that I do teach 2 weekly gym classes but they are not counted as my workouts as I’m usually moving around and checking on other’s form and not using the weights that I would use if it was my workout alone).
So that’s taken care of. I also write down my workouts each day in my day planner like an appointment with myself. And I don’t cancel on myself EVER!!
Now, here is where we get serious and knowing my previous struggles in this area; planning is key to my success. Knowing that this is only an 8-week program (and then I do another program based on my next goals…I never “stop” progressing and learning), I can set my mind to doing my best every meal, every day and every week until the end. Starting pics will be in tomorrow’s post. Follow me for support cuz I def need all that I can get!
I will make create more variety in my meals this challenge, than my “usual” normal plan. The reason I’ve decided to do this is because when I fall back into my “normal”; which is not “bad” in any way from the years of experience I’ve been adapting, it only keeps me in the same place. In order to make changes, much like in my workouts, I know that my foods need to shift up a bit too. Nutrition is key and so is supplementing, so my daily Shakeology and my energize boosts will be helpful to my success as I push for more.
Ready to see week 1?
